I'm building a fuzz face clone (type JH-F1) and the only schematic I've found is this one:

Is this diagram (most specifically, the given values for resistors) accurate?
Thanks

EDIT: What the hell does "TP" stand for on there?

normally TP means Test Point, but that makes no sense in this diagram. it's probably just noting offboard wiring. you can just ignore those.

just fyi, i've heard a whole lotta bad abot the hendrix fuzzes. probably better to go with a real fuzzface.

anyway that schem has different resistor values than the diagrams here (jh-1 and jh-2 toward the bottom).

but idk, from what ive seen that gottfried guy traces actual working units.

I think I'll go with it, mainly because I've wanted the pedal for a while but can't justify paying $150 for that simple of a circuit. The difference in values, I think, are due to the Gottfried one is showing the JH-F1 (blue), not the arbiter red or the black JH-2. If it sounds crappy, not so much wasted.

well pick the transistors carefully and bias them correctly. they are the key to the sound.

i meant build a face, not buy one. i'm with you; i'd never pay such a ridiculous price for that circuit, especially since getting a good one is still a bit of a crapshoot.
